    Every parent of a child at that school, or any that carry through with these insane rules, needs to be at the school letting the administrators know they will no longer accept this kind of idiocy. Until parents begin seriously pushing back nothing will change.

    9Huskies – don’t quit trying. Scream at Him if you want. Dare Him if you want. Just be prepared to have the trajectory of your life totally altered when He does. There will be no need to question “did it happen?” – you will explode with knowing. It’s not a slow thing either. The changes you make may take some time, but when He comes to you, it’s instantaneous. Never quit asking. Never quit being ready to hear.

    Absolutely, without any doubt. It’s completely life altering.

    The “police” (I put in quotes because they never did show ID), never made a single attempt to identify themselves. I was taught, by a deputy sheriff friend I must add, to never even open the door if I was home alone. To ask for ID, precinct station, superiors name, and phone number, so I could call first and confirm whoever was at my door were legitimate police officers. I can’t understand why these two men made no attempt to identify themselves when asked repeatedly. Their uniforms looked a little fishy to me as well.

    I saw absolutely nothing “threatening” or “intimidating” about that stop what so ever. I’m sure the pastor was nervous, everyone is when in the uncomfortable situation of being pulled over for speeding. In one speech he destroyed his reputation, his church, and brought about shame his family will have to live with for a lifetime and probably generations to come. Was the lie worth it pastor?

    Why would men wealthy enough to own firearms need to steal blood/urine/feces soaked mats that serve as mattresses?

    Snowleopard – That was my immediate first thought as well. It does not sound in sync with what has been reported of villagers reactions to this point.

    I’ve thought the same thing since I heard the friends account. You simply cannot reach through a patrol car window and grab a 6’4 inch man by the throat when he is say ding up. Perhaps I’ve missed the news about what happened to the cigars, but I’ve not heard that as well.

    Dattebayo – the girl was shot in the head and lost her WHOLE family, she is probably still in shock. Give her a break and don’t judge.

    I cannot fault the chaser for several reasons. First is that they risk their lives daily to give all of us in tornado alley far greater warning times and accuracy. Second, they are most often the first responders, searching for victims and informing paramedics where to come. Third, and tragically, many still do not heed these warnings. This photo could prompt more parents to take a tornado warning more seriously. Unfortunately there remains a “it won’t happen to me” attitude. Next, and I’m sure least on his mind was a paycheck. Most chasers are very concerned citizens, but they do earn their living only from the photos and video they take. As to the comment on Facebook about the inference of hoping for good storm cells to chase – if you follow most any chaser they say this, again – it’s their job and how they earn a living.
    And that job saves lives.

    This is nothing new (at least in GA). One of my children in 1989, at age of barely 3, was prescribed Ritalin. Not all parents reach this place merely due to over-active kids. His symptoms were so extreme & severe, it was obvious something was very wrong. At the time parents did not have the internet to help learn, just dozens of docs. Despite warning bells roaring in my head I gave him one dose only, then never again. I was being told my child who could fluently read & do add. & sub. into triple digits by 3rd b-day was autistic. Every instinct as a mom told me this was wrong. I spent countless Sat. at t/library reading all I could. Finally found an article entitled “The Allergist That Roared” about a Dr. Theron Randolph discussing t/relation between severe allergies & severe hyper-activity & wrote to him. Received a response directing me to a MD/ND immunologist expert in the field. Sure enough my son had VERY severe dust/mold allergies (as well as many others). After 3 mon. on allergy shots & replacing anti-biotics w/homeopathics my sons behavior became MUCH more normal. Also cleaned up his diet & chemical influences in his room (stuff toys/non-natural cleaning prod/plastics, etc) He graduated HS at 15, college at 19 & was at one time the 7th ranked scholastic chess player in our state. Hate to think what t/outcome w/have been had I not trusted my instinct & kept him on psychotropic drugs from age 3. I was scolded by his reg. docs & poss. now c/have had him taken away from

    The only way I can judge Mormonism is by those I’ve met of that faith. For example. I went to Restoring Courage in Israel. The El Al flight was coach, far left side, 3 seats. You’ve never been in a cattle car until you’ve flown coach El Al. I have only a partial bladder. Of course I got the window seat. The couple next to me were Mormons. I’m 5’7 and could not move my legs. The man who was maybe 6’1 gave me his aisle seat, for a 13 hour flight! Not only that but I was alone, this couple ended up on my bus. Every day they watched out for me, checked to make sure I had gotten back on the bus, helped me when I was exhausted, etc. A greater example of Christian charity would be hard to find.
    You’d think a Beck trip would be all cons, or all Mormons. Not so! The back 4 rows of our bus had an atheist couple, a Catholic couple, the Mormon couple and 2 extremely progressive liberals!
    I think I will leave the judging up to God. I’m interested in what is in people’s heart. If it is kindness and a willingness to accept other ideas without condemnation that is in their heart, then we can find a way to get along. God will know what’s what and who is who when we stand before Him.

    Exactly. Trial by 12 citizens. He has the right to that. Then, let the punishment, if convicted, be what the law allows. It would be a hard jury to sit on. As a huge dog lover and someone with great friends in law enforcement who knows the pressures they and their families live with, it would be very painful. Especially if his regret is sincere. Just a sad, sad situation all the way around. But it obviously shows he does not have the judgement abilities necessary for the kinds of situations officers find themselves in.

    Excellent point! Monks should also be put in charge of fertilizing the land, they literally wrote the books on making land viable. Monks and the Israeli’s – they can grow anything.

    Soon all of America, not to mention his family and constituents will find out what kind of a man he really is. Will he honor his obligation? It would seem that becoming suddenly “unavailable” is a pretty clear indicator. I will, however, reserve judgement until he speaks/pays up. He still has time to save his honor, such as it is. So Rep. Holmes, are you a man of your word or not?

    Unfortunately, the young criminology majors have been raised in an atmosphere where merely pointing their finger or chewing a PB&J sammy gets you suspended. They have been programmed to fear and loath guns. You put it perfectly, they are already lost in the matrix by the time they exit college.
